The Neoception Asset Tracker offers cloud-based monitoring of production equipment. RFID readers from the Pepperl+Fuchs IDENTControl System use a tag to identify assets, whose object-specific information is sent via a gateway to the Neoception Cloud, where the data can be viewed at any time. This leads to a more detailed overview and makes it easier to plan production processes.

More and more industrial equipment is being connected to industrial networks. In 2019, the number of new connected nodes is expected to grow by 10%. Industrial Ethernet and Wireless continue to grow fast, but 2019 also marks the first year of fieldbus decline. These are the main findings in the annual study of the industrial network market by HMS Networks. Industrial Ethernet now accounts for 59% of new installed nodes (52% last year), while fieldbuses are on 35% (42). EtherNet/IP is still the most widely installed network at 15%, but PROFINET is closing in at 14%. Wireless technologies continue to develop strongly and are steady at 6% of the market (6).
